The high-flying Mariners take on the struggling Highlanders and come into the game unbeaten in four. Antonio Habas’ men will look to keep up the good work against Gerard Nus’ side that has not won in as many matches.
The Mariners will fancy their chances against NorthEast and will be depending on their attacking players against a relatively weak defence. Defensively, the Mariners have one of the best set-ups in the league. They have kept clean sheets in their last three games and have only conceded three goals all season until now.
Meanwhile, NorthEast will be keen to rediscover their form after a minor slump following a strong start to their campaign. They haven’t tasted victory in their last four games and need to pick up maximum points to climb into the semi-final spots.
